Beginner Arm Warmer #6 Baby Blue

 
Baby Blue Knitted Arm Warmer Pattern
This pattern is great for a beginner knitter because you only use the cable needle once in 38 rows. Simple seed stitch and moss stitch decorate the rest. Download the PDF above for instructions. Great for a beginner!

If you have any questions please let me know!
Take care

Silky Purple Arm Warmer #4


This is a beautiful cable pattern. It’s repeated twice as you can see in the photographs. The underside is knit with, what I call, a slip stitch ribbing. It gives it extra strength in my opinion. Better than regular ribbing. The cable pattern is used on 14 sts.
CO: 30
Approx. 65 yards of yarn
Yarn: Vanna White, Eggplant (purple)
Finished Size: 9 x 6.5inches
56 rows completed

Slow and Easy Cable (Arm Warmer #2)

SLOW AND EASY CABLE PATTERN


Pattern Fixed as of  10/27/12

Slip stitch surrounding the cable

This is one of my favorite arm warmer cabled pattern. It has a consistant pattern which is nice because you can stop the arm warmer height at any moment and it won't look like you interrupted the pattern in any way

This arm warmer is completely customizable. You can add 1 stitch, 2, 3 etc. The surrounding stitches are a slip stitch pattern. That makes it very durable and comfortably tight. It won't move around on you and it won't stretch out. Almost like elastic.

 Here is some of the information on the pattern.
